Never a doubt that I'm in and will work on funding and participation.

Wife and oldest will run.  Fat man will walk/trot.

Make it a camp out weekend somewhere close and Hunt-WA BBQ Summer Fest.....


Smossy's Girl..... I love the design but I think the boot track is better in black.  I know the mud idea but that brown is off to me.  I loved your initial design in Black.  I'd say just color the Flag and maybe the pins.......

And I'd make the pins about 2/3 smaller.  They are there and folks that know what they are will appreciate and tell the tale but take away from your leading on the text. 

My .02 cents worth about .0002

BLRMAN, i am sure you have thought of this but incase you havent, when the event is a couple weeks out, email the MENS ROOM 99.9, they really like doing stuff for the wounded warriors and pretty much anything to do with service men and women, it would be another way to get the event out there  :tup: maybe even email them sooner, maybe they would do a broadcast from it, they have done stuff like this in the past...

they are on my p.r. list.  I am gonna start beating the war drums about middle of April and then hit it really hard end of May all through June.  They interviewed my dad when he did his ride.  I'm not holding out hope for many wet siders as there are 7-8 races that day on that side, but hey, you never know.  Even if it hooks a few that is better than zero.

I cannot describe to you how freaking awesome those are!!!!!!!!!  I am gonna run these by my mother who is co planner on this deal and I will get back to you you.  I love the shirt for the huntwa folks too!  Probably have to put it up for a vote a little later down the road as to which one the huntwa family likes the best!  Thank you so much!!!!!!

Thank you, and you are most certainly welcome. Okay let me know what she says and any ideas that come to mind. I definitely welcome/want other members' ideas and thoughts as well, but I will be going by your final word :). If someone posts up an idea you want to try just say the word. The only reason is because I know how fast hundreds of opinions can change the entire thing, and I don't want to chase down every idea unless you agree, this is your project.

I agree with that, made them smaller, I'll post up versions later :) .

I did like the faded black boot print but when it changed from being black and white only - to having color - I tried to make it brown for a muddy effect lol. It's simple enough to change back and forth so it'll be up to the main man.

I like the smaller stars idea and my mom and a few other folks like the less busy #1 version.  I kind of like the added color of the brown but if its not too much trouble let's see if it pops more in black.  This is def the design we are running (haha) with!

5k runs are the "in" thing now... Foam runs, color runs, black light night runs, "run from the cops" runs, zombie runs, there are so so so many. I started doing them a couple years ago  :chuckle: I know.  It might be a "wetsider" thing.. but from April through December there is probably a 5k run every weekend, so I wouldn't worry too much about overlap. Definitely get the word out as much as possible, post a link to the facebook page on here when it's in full effect so we can all share on our pages. That's definitely the way most of them are found.

I'd figure out how to post it up on this site too: http://gametiime.com/ I look at it a lot for 5k runs.

What if you go for image #1 and have 'Heroes live forever' with your brothers name on the left sleave? Does that change the cost much?

  It does.  every image is an additional cost. It might be only a couple bucks but multiply that by hopefully hundreds of shirts and thats a big chunk of change that wouldn't be going to the charities.  Also, as personal as this is for me because of my brother, its not about just him.  Its about honoring all of our fallen warriors, their families, and our warriors still fighting.  I wouldn't want to personalize it like that.  I think it should most def be on the huntwa shirt if we are wanting to pursue that route with the elk antler shirt.  I think its a cool idea personally.  That way we know who to avoid at the run/walk :chuckle:

So I am firing up the Facebook page and not sure what to title it.  Yakima Run to Remember or Yakima Run To Remember: Fallen Heroes 5K  Suggestions or opinions?

June 21st works great for me. I'll try for sure to make it. Good incentive to hit the running trails and burn off some of this post Christmas weight Ive gained.

I really like the design!! We really should pursue the huntwa one as well. I am not fond of camo for everyday wear, but would have no problem paying extra (so as to not take money away from charity) for the poly shirt. I am in and will start spreading word to friends and co-workers.

Nice design SG, you're very talented. Do you think you could stylize a HUNT WA into the design by incorporating it into the center of the boot print? You know a HUNT WA tread.
